NFPA 79 VFD and Servo Cable Compliance

VFD and Servo Cable Compliance Under NFPA 79

“Electrical conductors and equipment supplied by power conversion equipment as part of adjustable speed drive systems shall be listed flexible motor supply cable marked RHH, RHW, RHW-2, XHH, XHHW, or XHHW-2 or selected based on the equipment manufacturers instructions.” –Circuits Supplied From Power Conversion Equipment , Chapter 4, Section 4.4.2.8, NFPA 79 2018 While previous NFPA 79 editions reference wire and cable primarily in Chapters 12 and 13, the 2018 Edition of NFPA 79 refers to cable in Chapter 4, General Requirements and Operating Conditions . This chapter directly corresponds to the conditions surrounding variable frequency and servo drive systems. This revision supports the use of high performing cable insulation to reduce safety concerns in these applications. Note that the revision not only applies to the conductors listed but also other materials based on the equipment manufacturers’ instructions. LAPP CABLES COMPLY WITH NFPA 79 2018 LAPP offers a variety of cables designed specifically to meet the technical and compliance requirements of variable frequency drives (VFD) and servo drives. These VFD and servo cables are composed entirely from high-quality materials that meet or exceed the standards set by leading drive and motor manufacturers— including Allen-Bradley ® and SIEMENS ® . LAPP’s extensive research, development and testing programs ensure that our full line of UL-listed cables not only meet or exceed NFPA 79 2018 standards but also offer best-of-class EMI protection, oil resistance and flexibility. NFPA 79 is the U.S. Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery and is referenced by the National Electrical Code under Article 670. NFPA 79 applies to the electrical equipment used within a wide variety of machines—and groups of machines operating in a coordinated manner.
